  Wood wasp is another name for a horntail - the 'sting' isn't a sting at all, it's an ovipositor for the laying of eggs.  Fascinating creature, totally harmless to humans - she just wanted to lay her eggs in your rotting wood.

Wierd ice like stuff on grass

Hmm yes, they're described as self-fertile, but most people find they get a noticeably bettter crop if there's an appropriate pollinator nearby.  A flowering crab apple will usually do the job.

Good luck

Impact of solar lights on wildlife ?

I'm sure it does affect some species more than others - now that our lights are out at night our robin goes to the main road to sing all night under the streetlights - he must be exhausted
